The full midnight moon is but a candle compared to the illumination of my power. The thick fog of dust dissipates, showing chunks of destroyed trees that litter the ground around me and a massive crater beneath my feet. I look down and see the battered and broken body of my greatest rival, Gouken my brother, I have won. "Akuma you monster, what have you done?", Gouken's cub shouts in anger as he runs toward his death at my hands. "Come little pup and learn the meaning of power!"
For years, I've stood in the shadows and watched as Gouken trained the young one to forsake the hidden power inside him and for years I've waited for the perfect time to strike, tonight Ryu will embrace the Satsui no Hadou or die. I reach down and grab Gouken by his lifeless neck, Ryu stops his advance and anger fills his face as I toss the body behind me and it lands on a bare leafless branch of one of the few remaining tre

It never occurred to him that this wasn't one of the sporadic updates that he had been receiving since Naruto left the village with Jiraiya. He just made himself comfortable and waited for her to pull out the latest letter and pour them both a glass a sake.
It wasn't until she hesitate that he really took notice. She was holding herself rather rigidly. The windows were closed, making the room stuffy, but quieter. There was no visible sake bottle, only a thick file on her desk.
"What happened? Is Naruto alright?"
She shook her head, "They're fine." She drew in a deep breath and pull a photograph from the file. She studied it as she spoke, "You know that it is Konoha's policy to keep tabs on anyone we've trained who's has decided to forgo t

Beads of cold sweat rolled down Rainbow Dash's neck. The hot ceiling lights above intensifying the anxiety she felt to such a point that she felt as though she was going to pass out. There she was, standing in the middle of Ponyville's largest store. Her eyes were wide, staring at the newest piece of fan-merchandise being sold.
No, it wasn't anything to do with the Wonderbolts.
It was a limited-time offer Daring Do wallet. Rainbow Dash had to keep her mouth shut to prevent drooling. The wallet was grey and had adventurer's face printed on the front, grinning competitively at some invisible foe. She was a force to be reckoned with, even as just a picture. Hilariously, based on how she looked out of the wallet, Rainbow Dash felt like she was the foe- her hero's ruby eyes piercing into her own like arrows in bows, primed to fire.
Overall, it was beyond awesome, much better t

Lay Off Hasbro and Stop Sending Hate-MailIt should come as no great surprise that during the couple of years that the brony community has been growing, more and more people have been finding reasons to object to some of the decisions that Hasbro have chosen to make. One of the most well-known issues was the infamous 'Derpy' situation, where certain people actively sent hate-mail to Hasbro for 'altering' the Derpy Hooves character. Despite the entire fiasco being unsympathetic and diabolical the community overreaction was embarrassing, to say the least it did a lot to suggest that, when they feel scorned, some bronies can be vicious little bastards.Lay Off Hasbro and Stop Sending Hate-Mail3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Being made aware of the radical potential of bronies suggests that history may repeat itself should other changes be made that upset the brony status quo.

Five seconds? Five minutes? Five millennia?
It didn't matter. There was no past, no future. Only the flames.
Oh, there was the light too! A light that came from everywhere! But mostly there was the flames.
Twisting, flickering, burning at her very soul. The pain was immeasurable, but it had always existed, as far back as she could remember, and she could remember a long time.
Or maybe she could... It was somewhat hard to measure time when there was nothing for her to measure it against. There was only the flames, eating away at her, yet never making her any smaller. Forever burning, the fire was all that existed.
Her body was... Wait, did she even have a body? Maybe she did at some point. At least she thought she did. Maybe she did. She hoped it was a nice body, one with a soft mane and maybe some nice friends to go along with it. Oh! And a name! She remembered that she had had a name at one point. It was a pretty name too. She had liked her name! She wished she

Five days since the coronation of Princess Twilight Sparkle.
“It was nice to see you, Zecora! Come visit again soon!” Twilight said to her friend as the zebra led her out the door.
“I must say, Twilight Sparkle, our meeting was quite fine! I assure you, the pleasure was entirely mine!” the zebra called back over her shoulder in her signature rhyme.
That went well, for once, Twilight mused to herself. Zecora had shown up several minutes early, bearing a letter confirming her appointment as Ambassador, as well as a large stack of paperwork containing everything from new trade proposals to military treaties. With each new proposal, Twilight felt her confidence grow; each one had been well-written, respectful, and most importantly, beneficial to both nations.
She stepped into the hallway outside the meeting room and stretched out with a pleasurable groan, contemplating taking a brisk walk before her next audience.

She knew she shouldn't be surprised that people doubted her story, she had a hard time believing it herself, but this Toa of Sound was just being difficult. She had also developed a certain disliking for how the blue lens on his silver Kanohi Akaku kept closing and opening, like it was taking pictures of them.

dripping from her eyelashes
that made me love her.
She was a sinking ship,
and I longed to descend
into the watery depths
of her eyes-
I could hold
It was the bruises sleeping
on the curve of her hips
that called to me like hungry sirens.
Licking her salty lips,
I traveled the scattered freckles on her back.
Shaping an angry dragon as if together,
we were part of the sky, all long-limbed,
tongues and teeth- she whispered,
"Do you know the story of Draco?"

Wings Of Fire
Send me off to the fiery abyss
Free me from life's grip
Morals have been tortured
Strengths have been reversed
Desires have been submersed
I plead for you to pass the torch
Hand over the destiny I've been waiting for
Let me finish off this unbearable dirge
Weep not for singed sins
Leave behind the memories
Mourn not for scarred skin
Forgive every tragedy
Set ablaze that darkness within
Grasp onto serenity
Fuel the flame for the ending
Cling onto clarity
There's peace after pain
Calm can engulf chaos
There's love behind hate
Freedom masks weakness
I've abandoned every promise
I couldn't complete what was said
My hope cannot rise from the ashes
Please, do not follow my footprints of flame
They only lead down a path where infernos cascade
There is no honorable life or even death for what I became
Consume this cruel reality

The sooner this was over, the better. Getting shipped out into the middle of nowhere during the wet season like a bunch of cargo was hardly what most of them had in mind, judging by the looks on their faces. Well, the faces of those more like him, Pebble thought. The soldiers in this particular caravan seemed a little bit too eager to rejoin their fellows on the marshy battlefield, their helmets tipped low, their eyes focused on the dirty metal floor of the vehicle, and their hands firmly clasped around the handles and barrels of their rifles. It made him uneasy. He tried to hide that to the best of his ability, but the veterans would pick up on his uncertainty and mercilessly mock him for it.
"Whassa matter, candy ass? Too scared to go trompin' around in some mud?" Pebble was startled to hear that the soldier speaking was a woman, and from the sound of it, she was particularly nasty. She eyed him up and down, like a butcher inspecting a side of meat. "You're cute. The hell're you doin

I thought I was past this,
That I was done feeling this way.
But why is it you that I still miss
And think about some days.
It appears you have moved on,
And I thought I did too.
I'm trying to be strong
And figure out what to do.
But I can't stop thinking about it,
Can't help but remember all the fun we had.
A possibility inside my mind has been lit,
And this idea has been driving me mad.
Could there still be a chance for us?
Could we start it up again?
I don't want to leave what we had in the dust,
So what does this mean for us then?
Maybe I should just come right out
And say what has been on my thoughts.
What happened has made me doubt
What I originally thought were my wants.
I miss you.
I miss us.
With these thoughts, I'm not sure what to do.
And I don't know who else to trust.
I can't just go up to my friends and say this,
What would they think about my choices now?
But I can't help what I feel and miss.
I'm still trying to figure out how!
I mean, how can this happen?

To Save Your Life
Heroes are hard to come by
Especially in this day and age
Because of you- I am still alive
Hail, the vanquisher of pain
I fought as long as I could have
But I sank into the weakness below
And I felt my sorrow's wrath
The helplessness took over
My fists let go
Of the resistance
I fell from hope
The light faded in the distance
It was all a dream
A simple false belief
Hands dangled frantically / Tears dripped endlessly
I needed a hero to save me / I yearned to be set free
A hand reached out
I was finally found
I rose back to grace
And the darkness brightened
The savior I awaited
Lifted me up and triumphed
I prayed as much as I needed
Even when I was beyond drowning
I knew a kind soul would pay heed
Every mourning human deserves saving

Having found themselves stopped from reaching the Soga shrine by Mariko Soga, the heroes decided to let Sanae battle against her, looking on as their ally finally won after a long and hard battle. While the heroes now approached the defeated youkai, Mariko herself was panicking as she had lost the Hōju when she fell to the ground.
But just as she was about to get up, Reimu pointed at the youkai's neck with her gohei before speaking out to her in a solemn tone. "Now, lead us to your sister and don't try anything funny on the way. Once we've cleared this incident up, you should also tell us where you hid the books Manami had stolen from you."

Spoiler: click to toggle
I have been a great renowned hero especially in the days of yore. For in 1823, I Derpy Hooves came to the planet of Epsilon 2, where the citizens were in an epic war against the evil muffin race. The battles between both sides were of epic proportions. Thousands would appear on the field of battle, and millions (sometimes billions) would die on that same battlefield. After 100's of years the war had come to an end. It was absolutely horrific. Trillions died, humans and muffins alike. But it was the muffins who won the great epic Human-Muffin War, and thus they enslaved the beaten humans. The dastardly cruel muffins would force the humans to produce muffin offspring. Under Muffin Law, the humans were banned from eating fruits, vegetables, breads and pastries. The humans were tortured
